“Quaint diner!”
Reviewed November 28, 2012 via mobile

This little spot has been around Birmingham for more than 20 years. The Greek family running it is warm and friendly. Grabbed a quick breakfast and was rather pleased with my two eggs, grits, bacon, toast and coffee for $7. A great place to get out of the cold, and an quick walk from the tutwiler hotel -- and a much better breakfast! Across from the art museum and the courts.

“Good and Quick”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

This little diner has a walk-up order station and is small, but efficient. The food appears to be homemade and is flavorful. The hotdogs with onions remind me of the best of NYC, and the pancakes are fluffy, hot, and more than one person could eat! Be advised that this place is mostly a breakfast/lunch place, and out of the way for a special trip. However, if you happen to be in the downtown/Court/Art Museum area, it fits the bill!

“Great for a Saturday lunch”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

I went twice to this deli the last two Saturdays. It is a great choice for lunch. Most things are closed on Saturday, so this is a convenient place when you are at the BJCC. I had a cheeseburger and fries. Everyone enjoyed their food. Reasonably priced for downtown Birmingham.

“Nice little place for local taste..”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

The restaurant at my hotel was closed so I asked hotel staff for a recommendation. This place was within walking distance, reasonably priced, and the food was tasty. Probably not the healthiest fare, but good nevertheless.
